US-Born Kids Left Behind When Parents Are Deported

Hosted by

US Immigration and Customs Enforcement or ICE launched "Operation Return to Sender" in May of last year.  This latest program for rounding up and deporting undocumented workers has resulted in the arrest of 18,000 people so far.  About 250 have been deported without getting a chance to collect their property -- or even their children, many of whom are citizens born in this country.  How many kids are being left behind when families are broken?  We talk to opponents and defenders of a controversial program.
